Paper Abstract

Passive Coherent Location (PCL) is going to be important and perspective system of passive location of non cooperative and stealth targets. It works with the sources of irradiation of opportunity. PCL is intended to be a part of mobile Air Command and Control System (ACCS) as a Deployable ACCS Component (DAC). The company ERA works on PCL system parameters verification program by complete PCL simulator development since the year 2003. The Czech DoD takes financial participation on this program. The moving targets scenario, the RCS calculation by method of moment, ground clutter scattering and signal processing method (the bottle neck of the PCL) are available up to now in simulator tool. The digital signal (DSP) processing algorithms are performed both on simulated data and on real data measured at NATO C3 Agency in their Haag experiment. The Institute of Information Theory and Automation of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic takes part on the implementation of the DSP algorithms in FPGA. The paper describes the simulator and signal processing structure and results both on simulated and measured data.
